Overview

Visit Atomic bomb dome and try Hiroshima's local specialty on Miyajima Shrine island.
First, we take a local train and ferry to Miyajima island and have lunch. In the afternoon, we go back to downtown Hiroshima and visit atomic bomb dome, ground zero, some monuments in the peace park and peace museum. I am flexible to customize my tour based on your request. Please feel free to contact me.

What to Expect

Hiroshima is world famous for the atomic bomb dome but you can't miss Miyajima!
Explore Miyajima shrine island, Japan's top 3 most scenic location. You will be greeted by wild deer there. 800 year-old Itsukushima shrine and its giant gate are very unique ones standing in the bay.
What you can enjoy on the island is not only seeing but also eating. Why don't you try Hiroshima's local specialty, Okonomi-yaki? Egg, cabbage, pork, bean sprouts are cooked on a hot iron plate and put together like a layered pancake (please see my phogo gallary).
The other destination is the atomic bomb dome and peace museum. Hiroshima is the first city that suffered from the atomic bombing. Seeing and knowing what happened in Hiroshima gives us a good chance to think about our future, to share one world with love and peace.

“ Great hiroshima culture trip with keiko! ”

Keiko speaks good english and was very friendly. Shes always looking out for the children and elderly in our group. Our time was very tight, but she managed to give us highlights of the hiroshima history and made our time very well-spent. I highly recommend Keiko for anyone who wants to know about Japan history, she is super knowledgeable!

Keiko:

Thank you Casey, I had a great day with you all, too! I hope your stay in Hiroshima became a memorable one for you all, especially for your children. I was amazed at how carefully they read the explanation in the museum and how intelligent they are. We can be small pieces of a peaceful world. Let peace bloom!

“ Couldn't ask for more ”

Keiko is easily the most competent and accommodating guide I have met. Throughout our tour of Hiroshima and Miyajima Island, she provided very detailed and comprehensive information, and was willing to talk about the very poignant aspects of the atomic bomb attack. Keiko has a lovely fun and bubbly personality, and exceptional English speaking skills. She paced the day perfectly for us, never being pushy about timing which was nice. For anyone planning to hire an English speaking guide, I could not recommend her more highly. She was great!. Thank you Keiko, arigatogozaimashita

Keiko:

Thank you Lindsay, you all were so nice and I really enjoyed the tour with you. The history of Hiroshima is sad but I believe we can make it a catalyst to get a peaceful world. Let peace bloom and please visit Japan again!!

“ A Wonderful Tour Guide Who Feels Like Family ”

My family and I took a half-day tour in Hiroshima with Keiko. From the very get-go, Keiko welcomed us warmly and talked with us easily, as though she were a long-lost family member and we were catching up. The insightful facts she gave us made us want to know even more about Hiroshima, and she was very patient throughout the whole tour, despite the fact that we often took shopping detours. Thank you so much Keiko!

Keiko:

Thank you Deeani, I felt the same way!! It was really a pleasant day for me, too. I'm glad to know that you were more interested in Hiroshima, which all the tour guides want to hear from customer. Thank you again and enjoy Japan!!
